Detecting if an entry is an alias is just a matter of checking the 
'alias' ObjectClass. This is already indexed.

Sorry, but can you refresh my memory and tell what are we using those 
index for ? I was wondering yesterday if we needed to keep an 'aliased 
Object' -> 'alias' reverse index.

Maybe I'm overlooking this aspect. Anyway, the index are stillpresent atm.
